2016 Honda Civic Coupe vs 2016 Subaru BRZ
Even though the lead-in to the 2016 model year was packed with updates, remodels and a new vehicle, the most exciting thing to happen to the Honda lineup here in Canada would have to be the generational makeover of the Honda Civic. The Civic has been the best-selling passenger car in the country for the past 17 years, after all. So the updates, upgrades and cosmetic changes have everyone very excited! With all of that in mind, we thought we’d see how the 2-door version of the compact car stacks up against another sporty, popular 2-door coupe by comparing the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe vs 2016 Subaru BRZ.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe
Taking a gander at the table above, you can start to see the similarities and differences between the two vehicles, and in particular the numerous advantages that the Civic Coupe has over its competitor. While the Subaru BRZ is an extremely attractive sports car, it can’t exactly measure up to what the popular Civic Coupe has to offer. Let’s start from the top of the table with fuel efficiency. Driving through city street conditions like here in Edmonton, the Civic Coupe utilizes 1.6 l/100km less fuel than the BRZ. Hop on the highway, and the Civic still utilizes 1.2 l/100km less. Those will both add up to some impressive savings at the gas station over time.
While fuel efficiency might have been an expected advantage, there are other areas in which the Civic Coupe prevails over its competition. For instance, space is important no matter what kind of vehicle you’re driving. The trunk of the Civic Coupe, offers an extra 5.2 cu. ft. of space to fill with luggage or whatever it is that you need to bring along with you. That in itself is a pretty hefty bonus. But more important than trunk space is cabin space, which the Civic Coupe also trumps the BRZ in by 19.7 cu. ft. That means you and your passengers will have much more room to stretch out and get comfortable.
